Any tips - Not wasting glitter?

Post by Lauri Strandell on Tue May 29, 2012 2:26 am

I was just wondering if you have any tips when it comes to wasting glitter. Do you just brush it off onto paper and then dump it back in your pots? Do you just figure it into the cost of doing business? Thanks so much. Lauri

i just dump out my glitter, i don't think in the grand scheme of things you lose all that much really but then I only do it for a few kids at my work and occassionally a friends party. - i am still a beginner.

I used to try and save it and it was just too much of a hassle. Now I just embrace the waste Smile

Just a cost of doing business... I don't want to "save" it as there are now skin cells mixed in with it... Suspect

I've started using the Lisa Joy Young method of applying glitter. She just gets a bit on her fingertip and dabs it where it's needed. I don't use near as much and it doesn't go everywhere.

Miss Ronnie, you crack me up Laughing

I think debranewmanart is referring to Lisa Joy Young applying glitter to her face painting designs with the fingers... this discussion is about applying glitter tattoos, since it's in the Glitter Tattoo category... (not that I'm the forum police or anything!) Laughing
